Company Overview

Redeux Energy is the trusted partner for high-quality, utility-scale, clean energy project development.  They are experts in transforming greenfield, brownfield and industrial lands into renewable power projects that create new revenue streams, meet ESG goals, and support local economies and workforces. With an expanding portfolio of projects and a commitment to sustainable growth, Redeux Energy focuses on large-scale solar farms spanning thousands of acres.

Jared Ivie, Redeux Energy Director of Project Management Office (PMO), shares insights into their journey towards efficient project management and scalability.

Challenges Faced

As a startup, Redeux Energy confronted the challenge of managing exponential growth with a myriad of disparate tools. The company operated using various platforms like Google, Microsoft Word, and Smartsheet, leading to inefficiencies and disjointed processes. Their initial objective was clear: consolidate operations onto a unified platform to support scaling efforts effectively.

Redeux Energy’s decision to transition from Smartsheet to OnePlan stemmed from the need for a structured portfolio management tool. While considering options like Microsoft Project, they found OnePlan to strike the perfect balance between flexibility and robust functionality. This balance addressed the limitations of other tools, offering a comprehensive solution tailored to their project management requirements.

As the company transitioned towards Microsoft’s suite of tools, Redeux Energy also aimed to leverage the seamless integration of Teams, Outlook, and other essential Microsoft applications.

Adopting OnePlan

The introduction of OnePlan marked a pivotal moment for Redeux Energy’s standardization efforts. Prior to integrating OnePlan, the company dedicated significant resources to develop robust internal processes, laying a strong foundation for efficient workflow execution. OnePlan seamlessly fit into this framework, offering the flexibility and functionality required to manage complex project pipelines.

Jared emphasized OnePlan’s unique position in the market, bridging the gap between basic cloud-based tools and intricate, resource-intensive project scheduling solutions. This balance allowed Redeux Energy to implement both straightforward and detailed scheduling processes within a single platform, catering to diverse project management needs.

Redeux Energy’s implementation journey was supported by PPM Works, providing expert guidance for a comprehensive build-out within their environment. This collaborative effort ensured a tailored deployment of OnePlan, aligning with Redeux Energy’s specific needs and processes.
